    Brandon Darner has only one rule when producing: the music must speak to him, regardless of the genre. He also chooses API for that “conversation.” “I travel a lot for my work, but I also have a lot of materials sent to me—so I wanted to have a great console for when my partner and I are doing mixes.” One of the mixes Darner is referring to was Imagine Dragons’ first album Night Visions. “The 1608 was a fantastic solution… View this story

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   Simply, good monitors are very important. Video productions monitor using screens. Audio productions monitor using loudspeakers that are driven by amplifiers. Every decision made in a musical production (not only regarding sounds but also arrangements and even performances) is based on what everyone is hearing. For example, if you’re recording a bass sound and the monitors sound thin, you may mistakenly believe that the bass sound itself is thin and compensate by adding… View this story

    Rhythm section tracking is the most important recording session in the production cycle of a record. The recording engineer captures the feel and sound of the musicians as they interpret the song and support the artist’s performance.
